A harbor seal pup that attracted a crowd of onlookers to the shore of Portland, Maine’s Back Cove on Tuesday, July 29, 2014, was euthanized because it was considered too sick to be transported to an out-of-state rehab facility, according to an article on PressHerald.com.

The three- to four-month-old pup appeared to be resting at the edge of Back Cove, next to Interstate 295, for a few hours from Tuesday morning into the afternoon. It was just feet from a popular trail around the cove, and attracted a steady flow of admirers and people who feared for its health.
